About the Swimming Damsel Nymph Trout Fly

The Swimming Damsel Nymph is an exciting damsel that has a unique swimming action. This fly pattern is used in fly fishing for trout to imitate damselfly nymphs, which are a common food source for trout in the rivers and stillwaters of England. The Damselfly nymphs are found in a wide variety of habitats, from small streams to large rivers and stillwaters, and they are active throughout the year, making them a good food source for trout.

The Swimming Damsel Nymph is often weighted with a wire and beads to help it sink quickly, and it's usually fished on a floating line with a slow retrieve.
